The Safe-T-Cable® system is comprised of various lengths of high tensile, pre-twisted, stainless steel cable with a fitting at on end, and a ferrule, which may be terminated at any point along the length of the cable. The precision installation tool and its accessories allow the user to verify the calibration, and easily install the Safe-T-Cable® in any location in which it is required.
Glenair UK Ltd is the sole authorised UK distributor for the Daniels Manufacturing Corporation (DMC) range of connector tooling and provides their Authorised DMC Repair Facility in the United Kingdom. We offer complete tool repair and recertification for the range of connector tooling including:
The Glenair Earth bonding system is a fast, effective and reliable means of creating an attachment to metallic structures. It creates an equipotential bond between equipment for the passage of high intensity current in case of short circuit. Suitable where lightning strike protection is required, for EMC where low resistance electrical connections must be maintained, and in hazardous areas where naked flame is not permitted.
Glenair offer a full range of MIL-I-81969 qualified Insertion, Removal or Insertion/Removal Tools. These are available in Metal, Plastic or Metal/Plastic. Most part numbers are ex-stock.
These tools are specifically designed to insert or remove contacts from electrical connectors, available for both front and rear release connector types.
As well as the Mil qualified product, Glenair also supplies many other tools for non-Mil applications.
Stripping multi-conductor wire cable is often done by hand with a razor blade. This is a dangerous and difficult way to remove the jacket from any type of electrical cable. The DMC Twist-Strip™ products have adjustable blades that allow the tool to accommodate variances in the cable. The repeatable function of the tool reduces operator error and is up to 3 to 5 times faster than conventional methods.
Glenair's history of interconnect innovation for manned space applications began with our design and fabrication role in the realization of the golden umbilical life-support cable used by Commander Ed White in the first American Gemini Program space walk in 1965.
